Currently for this set of tyres I am not looking at comfort at all. Want decent grip in dry and wet condition, and can handle rough terrain. All this is fuss about tyre change is because I am driving to Leh next Friday. I was never happy with Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 right from the beginning. Wanted to change right after delivery but the budget did not permit it. Currently 70% of the current life of the Goodyear is exhausted and the remaining 30% of the tyre life will not suffice the 9000 kms trip to Leh. So looking at Hankook for two reasons, one for being a harder compound and the other being its quite cheap currently compared to Bridgestone, Michelins, Yokos.
